A Winter Vignette Made from Christmas Decorations!


You may remember that this was how the top of our TV Entertainment Center looked in the Living Room decorated for Christmas.......
I left the gold planters and the Mercury Glass Trees out......

I put the gold branch trees bought at Kohl's that you see in the photo below, in the gold planters........
I added the other 2 Mercury Glass Trees from the set of 4 bought at Sam's Club.......
I used one gold Tinsel Tree, the Ice House and Church and the 2 gold deer from this Christmas vignette in the Dining Room......
And I came up with this Winter vignette for the top of the TV Entertainment Center until I decide exactly how much I will be decorating for Valentine's Day.......
 I threw this together in about 10 minutes!!
I took some of the bottle brush trees that I had also used in the Dining Room along with these gold church ornaments......

See the trees and the gold churches in this Christmas vignette.......
I thought it all made for a nice looking Winter Vignette!!
 Something to brighten the cold Winter days ahead!
It is quite shimmery!!!  LOL!

I will let the photos do the talking.......
Now you know that I just have to show you it in the evening, don't you??????
I have to admit that it sure does add a bit of Glitz, Glam and Glow to the Living Room!!

I think this is a perfect example of what I have been saying for years now.......

"Who said you have to take down your decorations after Christmas?"

I hope you will come back to visit soon!!

Celebrating Winter in the Den , Part 1, 2015

I knew I would not have the time to decorate our Den for Christmas this past Holiday season so I decided that I would decorate it for Winter instead and for once, be ahead of the game!!
Today, I am going to show you how my china cupboard in the Den has looked for quite some time now!
First, lets start with the top of the china cupboard.....
I placed a bleached bottle brush tree in this bird cage......
The sweet birds were bought before Christmas on Clearance at Wegman's by Joe.......
I love the hats on them!!
The lighted Snow man was a church Flea Market find from the Summer......
This cute Doll dressed for Winter was bought at a Thrift Store a few years ago.....
The Cloche was bought at Target for 70% off this year and the white birds were bought at Michaels for 80% off!!
I decided to leave my cute Victorian angels out after Christmas.....
I took the red and blue transferware dishes that are normally in this China Cupboard out........
And added my collection of these cute figurines........
I hung some crocheted snowflakes from the lace linens......
The top shelf......
You can see that I still left some pieces of red transferware in the cupboard......

The middle shelf.......
And the bottom shelf.....
In a future post, I will show you how it looks in the evening all lit up because in the Summer, I installed puck lights in the cupboard.......
On top of the vintage suitcase on the floor is a wooden pedestal .........
 It became an extension of the bottom shelf so to speak.....
This is Winter Tree #1..........
It is decorated for Winter with snow balls bought again at a church Flea Market in the Summer......
Winter house ornaments.......
Glass balls painted with pine cones.....
Gold glittered pine cones.....
Crocheted snow flakes.....
And some Dollar Tree snowflakes.......
The tree is wrapped with a wired clear beaded garland ......
And another clear beaded garland that looks like icicles.......
It is one of those trees in an urn and I placed it in a vintage crock......
Hanging on the door of the cupboard are 2 snowmen ornaments and winter jungle bells.....
 I bought this cute snowman at our church Craft Fair in November.......
To the side of the cupboard ......
Some Winter greenery with one cones and a snowflake were placed in this vintage pitcher along with a battery operated LED candle that comes on by timer......
"Wanted One Magic Hat"
The little tree lights up!!
I decorated underneath the China Cupoard too!!!
My dear neighbor Elly, who is now in a Nursing Home with Alzheimer's was an avid collector of snowmen....
These are 2 of hers.....
Along with a sled or two.....
And another Doll dressed in Winter Garb....
More snowmen in a sled and skates....
And this little bear in her chair is here all year round...
So there you have it!!
I will be sharing the rest of my Winter decorations in the Den soon........

Here is a sneak peak.....
But in my next post, I will be showing you how I decorated the top of our TV Entertainment center in the Living Room for Winter......
 We will finally have temps. in the 30's here this week after having been below freezing for most of the time since Christmas!!

I am still taking down Christmas!!

 But I am taking my time and weeding out some things, donating them to our Church Flea Market and organizing how I pack them away.........I hope to do a post on that over on my Christmas Blog for Rudolph Day on the 25th......

If I do decorate for Valentine's Day this year, it may be just be the Trees in the Living and Dining Room but we will see......

I am not fretting over it and I will see how I feel after all of Christmas is put away from the downstairs.....

I DO leave up Valentine's decorations for all of February so time will tell!!

I do hope you will be back to visit again soon!!!
